Ezekiel 37:1-28
1. The hand of Jehovah was upon me, and Jehovah carried me out in the Spirit, and set me down in the midst of a valley; and it was full of bones.
2. And he caused me to pass by them round about; and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and behold, they were very dry.
3. And he said unto me, Son of man, Shall these bones live? And I said, Lord Jehovah, thou knowest.
4. And he said unto me, Prophesy over these bones, and say unto them, Ye dry bones, hear the word of Jehovah.
5. Thus saith the Lord Jehovah unto these bones: Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live.
6. And I will put sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live: and ye shall know that I [am] Jehovah.
7. And I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a rustling, and the bones came together, bone to its bone.
8. And I looked, and behold, sinews and flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them over; but there was no breath in them.
9. And he said unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
10. And I prophesied as he had commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
11. And he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. Behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off!
12. Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, O my people, and bring you into the land of Israel.
13. And ye shall know that I [am] Jehovah, when I have opened your graves, and have caused you to come up out of your graves, O my people.
14. And I will put my Spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I will place you in your own land: and ye shall know that I Jehovah have spoken, and have done [it], saith Jehovah.
15. And the word of Jehovah came unto me, saying,
16. And thou, son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel, his companions. And take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and all the house of Israel, his companions.
17. And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thy hand.
18. And when the children of my people speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not declare unto us what thou meanest by these?
19. say unto them, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his companions, and will put them with this, with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in my hand.
20. And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thy hand before their eyes.
21. And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, whither they are gone, and will gather them from every side, and bring them into their own land:
22. and I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.
23. And they shall not defile themselves any more with their idols, or with their detestable things, or with any of their transgressions; and I will save them out of all their dwelling-places wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them; and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.
24. And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: and they shall walk in mine ordinances, and keep my statutes, and do them.
25. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and David my servant shall be their prince for ever.
26. And I will make a covenant of peace with them: it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for ever.
27. And my tabernacle shall be over them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
28. And the nations shall know that I Jehovah do hallow Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for ever.

Ezekiel 38:1-23
1. And the word of Jehovah came unto me, saying,
2. Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
3. and say, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal.
4. And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them thoroughly equipped, a great assemblage with targets and shields, all of them handling swords:
5. Persia, Cush, and Phut with them, all of them with shield and helmet;
6. Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah from the uttermost north, and all his bands; many peoples with thee.
7. Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself thou, and all thine assemblage that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
8. After many days shalt thou be visited; at the end of years thou shalt come into the land brought back from the sword [and] gathered out of many peoples, upon the mountains of Israel which have been a perpetual waste: but it is brought forth out from the peoples, and they shall all of them be dwelling in safety.
9. And thou shalt ascend, thou shalt come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many peoples with thee.
10. Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: It shall even come to pass in that day that things shall come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought;
11. and thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will come to them that are in quiet, that dwell in safety, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
12. to seize a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thy hand against the waste places that are [now] inhabited, and against a people gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the middle of the land.
13. Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to seize a spoil? hast thou gathered thine assemblage to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take cattle and goods, to seize a great spoil?
14. Therefore prophesy, son of man, and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: In that day when my people Israel dwelleth in safety, shalt thou not know [it]?
15. And thou shalt come from thy place out of the uttermost north, thou and many peoples with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great assemblage and a mighty army.
16. And thou shalt come up against my people Israel as a cloud to cover the land it shall be at the end of days and I will bring thee against my land, that the nations may know me, when I shall be hallowed in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
17. Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Art thou not he of whom I have spoken in old time through my servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied in those days, for [many] years, that I would bring thee against them?
18. And it shall come to pass in that day, in the day when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord Jehovah, [that] my fury shall come up in my face;
19. for in my jealousy, in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Verily in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
20. so that the fish of the sea, and the fowl of the heavens, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things which creep upon the earth, and all mankind that are upon the face of the earth shall shake at my presence; and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
21. And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord Jehovah: every man's sword shall be against his brother.
22. And I will enter into judgment with him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many peoples that are with him, overflowing rain and great hailstones, fire and brimstone.
23. And I will magnify myself, and sanctify myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I [am] Jehovah.

Psalms 132:1-9
1. {A Song of degrees.} Jehovah, remember for David all his affliction;
2. How he swore unto Jehovah, vowed unto the Mighty One of Jacob:
3. I will not come into the tent of my house, I will not go up to the couch of my bed;
4. I will not give sleep to mine eyes, slumber to mine eyelids,
5. Until I find out a place for Jehovah, habitations for the Mighty One of Jacob.
6. Behold, we heard of it at Ephratah, we found it in the fields of the wood.
7. Let us go into his habitations, let us worship at his footstool.
8. Arise, Jehovah, into thy rest, thou and the ark of thy strength.
9. Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness, and let thy saints shout for joy.

Proverbs 29:4-4
4. A king by just judgment establisheth the land; but he that taketh gifts overthroweth it.

James 4:1-17
1. Whence [come] wars and whence fightings among you? [Is it] not thence, from your pleasures, which war in your members?
2. Ye lust and have not: ye kill and are full of envy, and cannot obtain; ye fight and war; ye have not because ye ask not.
3. Ye ask and receive not, because ye ask evilly, that ye may consume [it] in your pleasures.
4. Adulteresses, know ye not that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore is minded to be [the] friend of the world is constituted enemy of God.
5. Think ye that the scripture speaks in vain? Does the Spirit which has taken his abode in us desire enviously?
6. But he gives more grace. Wherefore he says, God sets himself against [the] proud, but gives grace to [the] lowly.
7. Subject yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
8. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse [your] hands, sinners, and purify [your] hearts, ye double-minded.
9. Be wretched, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and [your] joy to heaviness.
10. Humble yourselves before [the] Lord, and he shall exalt you.
11. Speak not against one another, brethren. He that speaks against [his] brother, or judges his brother, speaks against [the] law and judges [the] law. But if thou judgest [the] law, thou art not doer of [the] law, but judge.
12. One is the lawgiver and judge, who is able to save and to destroy: but who art *thou* who judgest thy neighbour?
13. Go to now, ye who say, To-day or to-morrow will we go into such a city and spend a year there, and traffic and make gain,
14. ye who do not know what will be on the morrow, ([for] what [is] your life? It is even a vapour, appearing for a little while, and then disappearing,)
15. instead of your saying, If the Lord should [so] will and we should live, we will also do this or that.
16. But now ye glory in your vauntings: all such glorying is evil.
17. To him therefore who knows how to do good, and does it not, to him it is sin.
